    Re: Why don't I like Bulleit?

    I've had several bottles of Bulleit, mostly after it first came out, and liked each one. I like Rye so that might explain it, but I don't think any I tried were 8 yrs old, and they cost a lot less than now.

    I'm also an old guy but my taste buds aren't shot (although other parts of me are.)

    I've never been sorry that I put it in my mouth.

    Re: Why don't I like Bulleit?

    I'm not a big Bulleit fan, either. I find it "disinteresting" and just plain unappealing to my palate.

    I bought one bottle and had another given to me. I drank one and decided it was a waste of time to open the other. I gave it a fair chance, but I just don't care for it. I gave the other bottle to a buddy, and he loves it. Just goes to show that taste is a very subjective thing.

    I hadn't considered the alternatives.

    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    I like Bulleit. I get a sort of red hots aftertaste like I do with Four Roses.
